    MXL-6S meets castle big block 1717?

    Does anyone have experience with an MM2 and the castle 1717, are the esc temps high? The weak link in my e revo is the motor, it's running very hot all the time and I already killed the stock one a few months ago.

    I should update the situation. Can't even find a non China castle 1717 so I guess that idea is useless. Guess I'll just make sure to let it cool down.

    If I wanted a Traxxas one, I wouldn’t have made the thread

    Email was from me talking about buying a replacement rotor, and they also informed me clearly there that they have not made a Traxxas motor in 6 years. I don’t want a Traxxas motor, am I clear. One had a failure and wasn’t covered and I don’t need that again, I’m happy I had my mxl tank in there and not the vxl as it surely would’ve killed the esc too. Especially when I can buy motors for $40 that work even better.

    Unlike the later 1515, 2200kv ERBE & EMBE motors, and to the best of my knowledge and understanding, the Traxxas Big Block motor is a Castle Creations motor.
    Feel very free to not buy it anyway.

    I always thought the same but this guy said otherwise and he’s with the manufacturer so I’ll take his word

    I see you fail to recognize that his statement and mine are not necessarily conflicting nor mutually exclusive.
    That’s okay. Once again, please don’t buy it.
